London, Eng. - When the 2012 Summer Olympic Games gets underway in London, LubriSyn will be represented very strongly and on an international level with sponsored riders competing for several counties.
Two names which are well known in the Olympics are Steffen Peters and Tina Konyot. Both LubriSyn sponsored riders will take their quest for gold to the Dressage arena.
Peters returns along with his travel companion Ravel to take another shot at the Gold. Ravel, a Dutchbred gelding, along with Peters won two bronze medals in the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games and LubriSyn was, and is, a part of Steffen’s training regime. “We started using LubriSyn several years ago, and it was a crucial time for Ravel. We wanted to do anything possible to preserve his fitness and elasticity. LubriSyn has been a tremendous help with this,” Peters was quoted as saying. Steffen continued to say, “It gives you a certain level of confidence when you can count on your horse being healthy and this is extremely important when you flying half way around the world.”
Tina Konyot who will be riding Calecto V is an avid user of LubriSyn HU for people, and also uses LubriSyn to maintain her horses’ joint health. At the Olympic Trials in Gladstone, NJ, Konyot and her 14-year-old Danish Warmblood stallion, Calecto V, had performed a test that left the audience rapt and the judges thrilled, resulting in a winning score of 80.149, the first score above 80% in these trials. Konyot is no stranger to the Worlds either, having also competed in the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.
Along with Konyot and Peters, another established equestrian is Lauren Hough, who is returning to the Olympics in a different fashion. Lauren was part of the US team at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, and will also be helping coach the US team at the London 2012 Games. LubriSyn has proudly sponsored Miss Hough since 2005.
Another LubriSyn sponsored rider, is Rodrigo Pessoa who will compete on the Team for Brazil. In 2007, Pessoa won the individual silver and team gold medals at the Pan American Games held in his home town. He was also chosen to be Brazil’s flag bearer for the Summer Olympic Games 2012. In 2004, Pessoa took home Olympic Gold in Athens for Individual Jumping.
This year, Pessoa will also be honored with bearing the Brazilian flag for their Olympic Team.
The LubriSyn Family of Products wishes the best to all the participants of the Olympic Games in 2012 and hopes that all athletes, human and animal, return safe and sound to their prospective countries.
Title: Totally Thoroughbred Horse Show at Pimlico Racetrack
Location: Baltimore, MD – Saturday, July 14th
Link out: Click here
Description: This will be the first year Pimlico is hosting the Totally Thoroughbred Horse Show which LubriSyn will be in attendance. Stop by the booth and hear about the revolutionary science helping horses coast to coast in keeping sound! There will be prizes and trivia contests! You can purchase any of the LubriSyn family of products at the booth on July 14th. Go see Cathy and ask her about some of the top thoroughbreds in the country staying sound on LubriSyn!
Restricted to Thoroughbreds off the racetrack looking for the second career, the event will be judged by Rodney Jenkins and Stuart Pittman.
LubriSyn and Re Borne Sponsored Hansen is going to begin the second half of his three-year-old campaign this weekend in the G III Iowa Derby at Prairie Meadows. The race, which is worth over $250,000 total purse money, will be run at a mile and a sixteenth. The Mike Maker trained son of Tapit will be making his first start since his unplaced finish in the 2012 GI Kentucky Derby. Hansen, prior to the Kentucky Derby, had not been off the board in any of his 7 starts.
The Iowa Derby, the premier three-year-old race at Prairie Meadows, only attracted a field of five. The beautiful grey-almost-white, Hansen, drew post position number 5 and Ramon Dominguez, who was aboard for the Grade I win in the Breeders’ Cup, Juvenile Dirt, will be his jockey.
Hansen’s co-owner, Dr. Kendall Hansen, boasts how well the homebred is training coming to this race. “He has never been so relaxed on the track as he is now, at the race track. So we’ve rethought our strategy and are going to concentrate on 1-1/8 and 1-1/4-mile races. I think from a mental aspect, he got a lot out of the Kentucky Derby.”
A win in the Iowa Derby will keep Hansen on track with the ultimate goal being the GI Travers at Saratoga in August.
LubriSyn and Re Borne are a part of Hansen’s daily routine as it is in all of Mike Maker’s horses.
Hansen’s record shows 7 starts with 4 wins and 2 seconds and purse money of $1,623,305.
Trainer Mike Maker, who was a longtime assistant trainer for D. Wayne Lukas, keeps all his horses on LubriSyn and Re Borne. Maker also sends out Morgan’s Guerrilla in the GII Dwyer Stakes at Belmont Park also to be run Saturday, June 30th. Maker’s horses have him in the top ten standings in the nation for money won.
In Louisville, KY this weekend all eyes will be on Churchill Downs where they will run the Grade I Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks. On Friday, LubriSyn will be represented by several runners who are major contenders in the Kentucky Oaks. Grace Hall, a recent winner of the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Oaks, is trained by Tony Dutrow. Tony Dutrow who is a native of Maryland, uses LubriSyn on his stable.
Also competing in the Oaks field is On Fire Baby, a winner last start of the Grade 3 Honey Bee at Oaklawn Park, is also a LubriSyn user. On Fire Baby is trained by Gary “Red Dog” Hartlage and is a local favorite among Louisville natives. On Fire baby breaks from post position #1 and Grace Hall is right beside her in #2.
Todd Pletcher, who has his complete stable on both LubriSyn and Re Borne, sends out Broadway’s Alibi. Breaking from the #6 post position, Broadway’s Alibi recently won her last start at Aqueduct Racetrack in the Grade 3 Comely Stakes. She was impressive in her start before the Comely, winning the Forward Gal Stakes by an impressive 16 3/4 lengths. The Kentucky Oaks is for 3-year-old filles and will be contested at a mile and one eighth.
Eclipse award winner Hansen, who is coming of a second in the Blue Grass Stakes is will be one of the favorites in the Derby field. Hansen’s trainer Mike Maker keeps all his horses on LubriSyn and Re Borne.
On the day of the Run for the Roses, Saturday, trainer Todd Pletcher sends out several runners for the Kentucky Derby. Winstar Farms Gemologist, who is undefeated to date and El Padrino who was victorious in the Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds compete from the Pletcher barn. Gemologist’s last race was in the Grade I Wood Memorial where he held off Alpha. Alpha, trained by Kiarian McLaughlin is also a LubriSyn customer.
Team Valor’s Went The Day Well, who is taking his stable mate Animal Kingdom’s road to the roses, recently won the Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes. Team Valor Stable trusts all of their horse’s joints to LubriSyn.
Rousing Sermon will also start in the Kentucky Derby for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer is also on the LubriSyn family of products. So far there is a field of 20 slated to run in the Derby and 14 for the Oaks. The purses for both the Kentucky Derby and the Kentucky Oaks exceed $1,000,000!
Entrusting Re Borne and LubriSyn to any horses is a small price to pay when aiming at a million dollar pay day!
Today, April 7th, the grade 1 Wood Memorial was run at Aqueduct Racetrack. These are the crucial and final weeks before the coveted Kentucky Derby which is always run on the first Saturday in May.
Winstar Farm’s Gemologist who was a convincing winner in his last start at Gulfstream, turned up the heat with a solid victory in the Wood Memorial. The Todd Pletcher trained colt by Tiznow is a perfect 5 for 5 after today’s performance. If all goes well, next stop will be the run for the roses at Churchill Downs. Todd Pletcher’s entire barn is on the LubriSyn family of products!
We can’t stop there! Alpha, owned by Godolphin Stables and trained by Kiarian McLaughlin ran a fast closing second in the 1 1/8th miles event. Trainer McLaughlin’s athletes get their daily dose of joint health maintance with LubriSyn. Alpha is a son of Bernadini and is also trying for that ticket to Kentucky.
Hopefully Alpha will get a ticket to the Derby but this will be decided on a highest earnings basis. Time will tell with other Kentucky Derby preps to be run next weekend featuring the Blue Grass Stakes and the Arkansas Derby. We will continue to track the progress of our LubriSyn user in the weeks to come!
Hansen Works 5/8ths at Trackside Click to see Hansen Breeze Through the Stretch at Trackside
Trainer Mike Maker has his entire stable on LubriSyn and Re Borne as he believes these products are valuable tools to assist with keeping his athletes healthy, sound and it shows! Maker trains last years two-year-old champ Hansen who has big sights set in his foreground, the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs.
Hansen, who is setting aim on the first Saturday in May, posted a solid work today at Trackside. Hansen breezed 5/8ths of a mile in 1:00.0 and had a strong gallop out after his work. Mike Maker and owners Harvey Diamond and Kendall Hansen all were pleased with this work. Several members of the Media gathered at the training center, which was formerly known as Louisville Downs, just to see the gray son of Tapit in action. Ramon Dominguez is scheduled to ride Hansen next week in the Blue Grass Stakes. Today’s work marks the final tune up for Hansen’s next performance, the Grade I Blue Grass Stakes which will be run on Saturday, April 14th at Keeneland Race Track.
This weekend of April 7th marks opening weekend of Keeneland which will host the Grade I Ashland Stakes for three-year-old fillies. Trainer Mike Maker will send out Lotta Lovin in the 1 1/16 miles contest. Lotta Lovin is coming of three straight wins on the polytrack and hopes to make it four in a row. LubriSyn and Re Borne are part of trainer Mike Maker’s daily supplements for his stable.
If it’s Derby fever you have, then tune in to watch the Grade I Wood Memorial which is run at Aqueduct Racetrack on Saturday.
A field of 8 are scheduled to go postward including Todd Pletcher trained and Winstar Farm owned, Gemologist. Gemologist is undefeated with four wins under his belt. He topped off his 2-year-old season with a victory in the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes, a Grade 2, at Churchill Downs in mid November. On March 12th, the son of Tiznow, made his first start of the year, carrying Javier Castellanos to a decisive 7 legnth victory over a tough allowance field. Gemologist is currently the favorite at 8/5. All of trainer Todd Pletcher’s horses in his barn are on a daily dose of LubriSyn.
Second choice is Alpha, at 5/2, is trained by Kiarian McLaughlin and will be ridden by Ramon Dominguez. McLaughlin is also a firm believer and user of the LubriSyn products.
Once again, horses that are maintained on LubriSyn seem to find their way to the Grade I level of competition.
In these tough times during the recent outbreak of EHV-1, it’s important to support your horses immune system. It is vital to help support your horse during the stresses of shipping, racing, and showing which can result in immune suppression. Our innovative product Re-Borne can bring you what no other product can, and this is just a small part of the constituents in Re-Borne;
Immune system factors involve the immunoglobulins which contain IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG, and IgM. All five of the immunoglobulins are antibodies. The two most beneficial are IgA and IgM. IgA plays a critical role in mucosal immunity where many respiratory and other viruses start. IgA can be found in blood, sweat, tears, saliva, and the mucous membranes of the respiratory and G.I. tract. IgA contains lactoferrin and transferrin which can be associated with growth factors, immune supporters, and nutrient helpers.
Lactoferrin is a multifunctional protein that has antimicrobial properties and is part of the innate immune system mainly at mucosa. Transferrin is also associated with the innate immune system and also found in the mucous membranes. Transferrin binds iron, which creates an environment low in free iron, which in turn makes it difficult for any bacteria to survive. Lactoferrin and transferrin work together to help the immune system function.
IgM is a very powerful bacteria fighter that can be found on B cells. IgG is another important anti-body in Re-Borne. It is the protein carrier and is critical in the first few hours of a mammal’s life; however, it is not shown that it can be absorbed after the first few hours because of “gut closure”. In instances where it is uncertain if the newborn got an adequate intake of its mother’s colostrum, Re-Borne can help.
PRPs are hormones that regulate the thymus gland, which is the mammal’s central command system for the immune system. PRPs help stimulate an underactive immune system or downgrade an overactive immune system. PRPs can help turn white blood cells into functionally active T-Cells. Cytokines are produced by the actions of the PRPs and are considered highly viral immune substances.
